In Colorado, a moose warning after attack on women, dog
BOULDER, Colo. — Colorado Parks and Wildlife officials are calling for people to be wary of moose after one attacked two women and a dog.
The Daily Camera reported earlier this week that a 64-year-old woman was gardening in her backyard when she heard her dog barking and turned around to see a moose with two calves attacking the dog.
The woman told a Boulder County sheriff’s deputy the moose began attacking her when she ran toward her house. A 60-year-old woman who was inside the house heard screaming and came outside, then was attacked too. The moose stopped attacking and fled when one of its calves ran away.
A neighbor drove the women to the hospital for treatment. They suffered minor injuries.
The incident is the state’s 15th moose-human conflict reported since 2013.
